Gar­dener at­tacked at work

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

A gar­dener was at­tacked by a group of men car­ry­ing weapons as he went about his work in Ruther­glen.

The 30-year-old vic­tim was work­ing along­side a 36-year-old col­league at an ad­dress on Browns­dale Road at around 1.30pm on Satur­day.

They were ap­proached by a group of five or six men who then se­ri­ously as­saulted the vic­tim.

The worker was in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent and was taken by am­bu­lance to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal where he was treated for an in­jury to his back, then later re­leased.

His work­mate man­aged to run away and was un­in­jured.

De­tec­tives are now hunt­ing the men re­spon­si­ble.

The only de­scrip­tion of the group at this time is that they were wear­ing dark coloured cloth­ing.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Ste­wart Wal­ton of Cam­bus­lang Po­lice Of­fice is ap­peal­ing to any­one who was in the area of Browns­dale Road around the time of the in­ci­dent on Satur­day af­ter­noon and saw this group of men, or wit­nessed the as­sault to come for­ward.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Cam­bus­lang Po­lice Of­fice through 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber 2009 of Novem­ber 11.
